Praying mantis


Really not sure....they are pretty rare here in Hungary as far as I can tell. This one was in a back garden and the only other time I've ever seen one was on a bus....on the green handrail, I barely spotted it!


The picture is the right way up....the mantis was hanging upside down! Hungarian name: Imádkozó sáska

I didn´t expect to find a big Mantis like this one in Europe. Very interesting.
